The photo above is a terrifc aerial shot that was taken by an Englishman in a small cabin cruiser that was tied up next to us last weekend. He had one of those drones…which I watched him fire up and send way up super high in the air…and, here’s the result! A terrific aerial shot of St Katharine’s Dock…we are the third boat in in the far top left corner. Along the left side of the marina basin are several historic barges tied up. Note – In the bottom left corner you can see the Tower Bridge struts…Neat-O!!
Of late, we’ve taken some time to tour the countless sights here in and around London as well as get the boat ship shape to set off for another season of high seas adventure.
Dear friends and fellow mariners, Pat and Wayne Davis who have been so helpful in the past on several ocean passages will be joining us shortly to cruise the Baltic Sea. Our plans are to cruise with the Ocean Cruising Club Baltic Rally covering some 2000 nautical miles in over 8 weeks starting in Germany and covering Denmark, Poland, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Finland, St Petersburg, Russia and Sweden.
Stay tuned…it’s time the ‘Pearl’ got off the dock!

**Note this incredible footage taken by the same drone over the marina and nearby London Tower, London Tower Bridge and lovely views up and down the Thames River!
